  For my love, dear friend,
You don’t have to feel obliged
It gets its own reward.
 
Translation of another couplet from the collection Lekhan by Rabindranath Tagore.
According to the poet “The lines in the following pages had their origin in China and Japan where the author was asked for his writings on fans or pieces of silk”. Many of them were translated by the poet himself and were published as Fireflies. The most famous one is here –
 
Swapna amar jonaki
Dipta praner monika
Stabdha andhar nishithe
Udichhe alor konika.
 
In the poet’s own translation it is:
 
My fancies are fireflies
specks of living light -
twinkling in the dark.
